Snow on Wednesday

There was a little bit of snow last night and today was a beautiful day, so we headed out again, this time to a woods local to us.  

Still a bit of snow on the ground.  Glad I had my boots on!

Up here there was no snow...I guess it had melted.

There was still snow along most of the tracks though.

Shame there wasn't enough to build a snowman!

Trees on Tuesday

Two outings in two days!  Yeah, it was good to get out again today.  Rain was forecast for today...originally it was snow, but then it changed to rain, but this morning was nice so we took the opportunity while we could.   This time we walked from home and didn't have to drive to get to the park which is only just over a mile away.

There were plenty of trees to scramble over and up.

Today I discovered my coat was reversible so thought it would be fun to wear it with the other side showing.

I'm also wearing my new jeans that Mum made this morning, but you can't really see them.  

I find some snowdrops by one of the small ponds.

Standing on one of the big rhododendrons.  These look fabulous in the spring when they are in flower.

The lakes were partially frozen, so not much to see really.

The sun was out a little bit though as you can see my shadow.

All in all another pleasant morning out.

A Walk in the Park

The sun was shining brightly, the sky was blue, such a beautiful morning that we decided to go for a walk in a park near to us.  We did have to drive to it unfortunately, and were reminded about how long it can take a relatively short distance because of traffic and various road works!  But it was worth it.  So although I am not on 'holiday' it almost felt like I was.

Fallen logs to walk along

Leafy paths to roam.

I wonder what I shall see round the next corner.

Some pretty flowers.

Hellebores I believe.

The little canal is running well and there was even a little waterfall.

I remember when I played pooh sticks with Lottie when she came to stay, a number of years ago now.

I stare out across the lake

the blue sky reflecting in the lake which looked extra blue.

Soaking up the sunshine

Such as you do.

Before too long we had to set off back home though as the car was needed.

A really lovely morning though, and so good to get out in it.
